Need a travel writer? A K-beauty writer? A geek culture writer? How about a podcast host or audio editor? Maybe a cookie? Everyone needs a cookie.

Hi! I’m Kristina, and I’d love to work with you. I’m a freelance writer, travel blogger, podcaster, and all around audio-nerd with a musical addiction and a fondness for tea.

I’ve been writing ever since I sort of knew how to hold a pencil and fell in love with radio at a young age when I used to make my own shows on my boombox. My two loves, combined with an insatiable obsession with travel, have allowed me to write, record, and explore the world.

I’ve written one novel, edited an essay collection, and contributed to many publications from Seoul Magazine to SYFY. My podcast boasts over 1 million unique listens and I’ve been on-air talent in both the UK and USA.

Let me help you with…

Kristina is an excellent producer. She has a great ear for radio casting and strong organisational skills. Definitely the person I’d go to if I wanted the right person in the right place at the right time and have them paid the right amount. She uses her extremely strong interpersonal skills to wrangle large casts into fantastic ensemble performances. Everyone always leaves the day happy. On top of this she is a strong writer who really knows her way around a script. She also always, and I mean always, brings a great selection of snacks. A pleasure to work with, highly recommended.

Kristina was a brilliant and creative social media editor for the professionally edited and externally published community news site East London Lines during the summer of 2014. She inspired in her team of multimedia journalists and editors the urgency and obligation to provide immediate news sharp information that she spun, tailored, metamorphosed through social media platforms. This was achieved with checking, creative though accurate language and style. I regard Kristina as cutting edge and pioneering and her professionalism and reliability is unrivaled and awesome.
